What does BackLeft mean?
I started out as a commercial river guide on the Arkansas River many years ago, teaching high schoolers how to raft and kayak and training guides how to be better boaters and teachers. Also, taking many, many guided trips for the public down many stretches of the Arkansas River for many years.
